Happy Birthday Jenny

My "Crazy for Paper" friend Jenny's birthday was back in November. Since she's such a busy, busy, busy girl, we celebrated today with lunch at Imiloa Sky Garden. Ohhhhhh the buffet was to die for. They had a nice salad bar, chicken, fish, shrimp (broke da mouth), steamed veggies, spaghetti, and more.

Jenny and I practically starved ourselves so we could grind to the max. We are good planners. LOL. This morning, all I ate was small bowl of cereal and my tummy was growling from a couple of hours before lunch.....hee-hee.

We made a couple of rounds to the buffet line then topped off lunch with some dessert. Ummmmmm soooooo yummy.

Here are the favors I shared with my friends. Just something reallly simple. They are Post It note pads with a cover. One is for my collection of "samples." :-) I know Jenny likes the pink and brown combo so I made two of those. Yep, she picked the one with the butterflies. I had Hello Kitty pens too but sorry, no picture of that.
The flap has Velcro with adhesive backing.
Here we are, Jenny and her "older" friends. Hee-hee. We all worked together some years back though Jenny and I work elsewhere now. How nice to keep in touch and have some "girly" time to chat and catch up on things. Back left is Jenny with Oli next to her. Seated in front of Jenny is Karen D. and me in red. OK, I had to include this awesome picture of snow-capped Mauna Kea which I took last week.

Hello Kitty

I've been MIA for a bit and in holiday recovery mode. :-) Time for another post.

I recently found this Martha Stewart Essential Paper Pad that has a bunch of very sweet and "non-busy" color coordinated prints. I made a bunch of cards from my friend. Here's one of them.

Other supplies used are:
Butterfly punch by Martha Stewart
Lace punch by Martha Stewart
Hello Kitty by Sizzix
Pearl by Hero Arts

Short post....hubby has to get on the computer. Have GREAT week.

Love Is for Sharing

Happy New Year!!! Gee, the past month was pretty insane even though I was on vacation the last week in December. My hubby and I are originally from Oahu and we decided to surprise our families by showing up on New Year's Eve. We caught the cab to my in-laws. It's a good thing they live kind of close to the airport or the fare would've been outrageous. :-) There were several "Kodak" moments. The best was when our two young nieces first set their eyes on us. Kaiya (6) ran full speed to one of our 3 sons who she is SOOOOOO attached to. She hung onto him like an opihi. :-) She calls him her "Teddy Bear."

Recently, my son's friend got married. I didn't have any wedding stamps but thought this Precious Moments image was cute and would fit the occasion. Other supplies used were Copic markers, Spellbinder dies, Congratulations stamp, butterfly punch, pearls by Hero Arts, Embossing powder, Ribbon, and the white background is embossed with Texturz by Sizzix for Stampin' Up.
